lovely spot to see the cathedral and walk on some grass that may have some artwork on it. Not far from harbour or town centre making it a nice stop point between the two.

Pleasant green open space. Great in summer - with fountains near the Council House. Close to interesting shops in Park Street, car parking easy. Cathedral right beside it, docks not far away.

A fitting setting for City Hall and another first class area in Bristol Central. The cathedral, library, water feature and central garden are delightful in summer and a comforting journey's-end sight in winter.

This is a great place to pause and catch your breath whilst enjoying the beautiful buildings surrounding the square. Children will enjoy spotting the unicorns on top of the council building.

This is normally a quiet oasis and nice area. On this visit there were a couple of untidy areas with rubbish and tents, it was not clear what was going on.

Nice spot for a quick packed lunch or even a read. On occasion events are held here, memorials, festivals. Well kept and links the floating harbour to the Bristol Cathedral and Library.
